Another year is coming to a close, making it the perfect time to look back at some of the best Lifetime Original movies the network had to offer us in 2019.

Lifetime has wrapped up another year of crazy, scandalous, and sometimes heartwarming movies just before the new year. Currently, the network is airing nothing but Christmas films, but before that, we saw everything from killer cheerleaders to shockingly real stories.

It’s hard to pick ten favorites in a year that was full of some truly memorable films. Lifetime covered the NXIVM cult, Nellie Bly’s story, the Dee Dee Blanchard murder, the college admissions scandal, and much more. However, we ultimately figured out the ten films that were the most memorable, and some of our choices might surprise you.

The headline films are always the network’s best-produced, but some classic by-the-numbers thrillers managed to beat out the rest to earn a spot on our list. The Cheerleader Escort is quintessential Lifetime, as were a few other nail-biting movies.
